This is my new boy, my big new orange/black VT I got today from Petsmart. He was kind of listless in his cup, and he seems to have less energy than my RT.
His pectoral fins are huge. I hope the pics really show just how elongated they are!
There is some black on the edge of his fins. Slight fin rot or is that his coloring? I can't seem to determine.
My only other concern is that he has a few bubble-looking things on him, and he holds his, I think its called the operculum, up on one side. The last picture is a picture of him showing that. It has bubbles on it too: that's not velvet, is it? Or is it just bubbles cause he was just put into his fresh QT tank for now before I move him into his new 2 gal Kritter Keeper.
Okay those are my only concerns now I need help to name him!!!
My boyfriend and I love hockey, and we have named our fish after hockey themes. Puck (rip) and Zamboni were our first two, and we were thinking for this guy some of the following:
Do you guys have any more ideas? Preferably hockey themed but I love to hear more!
Okay, finally, without further wait, here is my little guy! :
